Biography



Connecticut-based artist Sarah Baskin has been painting in watercolor for many years. She is attracted to the transparency of watercolor and how the white of the paper shines through the paint. In each image she paints, Sarah aspires to be a painter of light, focusing on how the sunlight plays across the side of a building or how it sparkles on the snow or in the water and on how shadows stretch across a landscape. She loves to include people in her impressionist landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes. Although Sarah has always lived in southern New England, her favorite place in the world is Brooksville, ME, where she has spent her summer vacations for her entire life. Many of her paintings are inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding towns, harbors and islands of Maine's Penobscot Bay.
 
In 2021, Sarah was juried into the Voice of Art’s Two/Three-Person Show at the Litchfield Inn in Litchfield, Connecticut, which runs through June 19, 2021, and the Hands on the Land: Art and the Environment in the Connecticut River Valley Exhibit in Essex, Connecticut, co-sponsored by the Connecticut River Museum and the Lyme Art Association. She will also be exhibiting work in the Spectrum Art Gallery’s Abstracting Nature Exhibit in Centerbrook, Connecticut, from May 14 through July 3, 2021. Sarah is a member of American Women Artists, the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society, Plein Air Painters of Maine and the Deer Isle Artists Association. She is also the regional contact for the Acadia Region Chapter of Plein Air Painters of Maine.
